Ireland-based global high-technology consultant Accenture reveals on November 29, 2019, the debut of Colombia’s first tech-demonstration “Nano Lab” -- at Medellin’s “Ruta N” technology incubation center.

“This space will immerse local customers in the latest emerging technologies, including artificial intelligence, extended reality, quantum computing, robotics, cybersecurity, blockchain, among others, to help them understand how these innovations influence their future business operations,” according to Accenture.

“For example, an experience of connected mines shows how augmented reality allows users to visualize a complete mining operation with digital copies of physical assets, such as trucks and drills, running an analysis to provide data on the productivity of individual machines.

“A demonstration of the coffee supply chain shows how blockchain and smart contract technologies can be used to organize and provide transparency to the coffee value chain, recording how the beans change hands, are packaged, repackaged and how they are ground or are served,” the company added.

According to Accenture Colombia president Marco Ribas, “the Nano Lab of Accenture in Medellín offers a new way to bring innovation experiences to our customers in Colombia, allowing them to access the best innovations of Accenture Labs R&D teams worldwide.”

The Accenture global network includes an “ecosystem of allies that includes clients, startups, academic institutions and the public sector, which will join a global network of more than 50 laboratories and Nano Labs of Accenture,” according to the company.

The scheme includes artificial intelligence (AI) “process optimization and influence on strategic decision making” as well as “extended reality (XR) immersive technologies that create completely new ways for people to experience and connect with the world around them,” according to the company.

Other technologies arising in the network include “next-generation cybersecurity services to build resilience from the inside out” as well as "Internet of Things" (IoT) technologies that employ advanced sensors, robotics and machine learning, according to the company.
